Since the first day of the shoot started, Thalapathy 63 making it to the headlines but mostly for the wrong reasons. After Sarkar, Vijay is currently busy with the shooting of his forthcoming flick Thalapathy 63 in Chennai. Directed by Atlee, the untitled film is a sports-drama based on women’s football.
When the shooting commenced, a focus light fell on electrician Selvaraj’s head and he sustained an injury. Vijay visited the hospital and gave him financial assistance. Later, KP Selvah, an aspiring director, came up with the charge that the story of Thalapathy 63 was his and he went to court alleging Atlee has plagiarised it. The matter is sub-judice now. Reports claims that the aspiring filmmaker had narrated the story to a few producers and believes someone among them might have leaked the story to Atlee Kumar, who is now making the short film into a full-fledged flick.

Amidst all these, a junior artist named Krishna Devi filed a case against Atlee and his assistant directors for mistreating her.

There are no basic facilities for Junior artists in the sets of Thalapthy63 and the makers are behaving very rude to us”.
